there. My name is ***** ***** I have been working with cameras 30 years now.
What are you attempting to do - copy your image files (photos) over to your PC?
Are you there?
heya sorry ..i've not connecting my camera few months but its now not recognising it
Are you trying to move your photos from the camera to the PC?
yes i am
Ok, while we figure that out, does your computer or laptop have an SD Card slot?
nope it doesnt
Ok, so we are stuck with having to transfer them by USB then.
Has anything changed on your computer? Is it the same one that you used before?
I've used it before ..i guess its the usual updated Windows stuff
And I assume that you have rebooted a couple of times?
yes ..about 5 times
Ok. Let me look at something...hold on....
Ok, Go to this page: http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_1000D.aspx and download and install No. 9 in that list. This will update the driver and hopefully get you back in business.
This will take time so I will convert his chat to a Q&A format which has not timer. Sound good?
Just reply when you have tried the driver.
